Canopy Ethiopia’s mission is to implement programs for environmental sustainability, to educate citizens in environmental stewardship, promote grassroots community development, and to fundraise for tree planting in depleted regions of Ethiopia one village at a time. Canopy Ethiopia’s extended mission is to fund the distribution of energy efficient cookers in critical regions of Ethiopia so that existing forests will be preserved.
Canopy Ethiopia is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was passionately created in 2008 by conscientious artists, environmentalists and thoughtful, dedicated citizens in response to the deforestation crisis taking place in Ethiopia.
What’s Happening NOW
Currently we are busy preparing for our first nursery in the Dendi region of Ethiopia. As we await road construction, locals are mobilizing as this exciting project begins to unfold. This project will be Canopy’s template for sustainable Ethiopian communities in the future.
